In 2008, then-Candidate Barack Obama promised to usher in an era of transparency, "put an end to the game playing" in Washington, and broadcast health care negotiations on C-SPAN. The Energy and Commerce Committee launched an investigation more than a year ago to allow Congress and the American public to understand whether he upheld his promises when writing legislation that fundamentally transformed the nation's health care system. This video examines those promises and the confusion and conflicting information surrounding the closed-door negotiations that led to enactment of the law.
